It’s easy to believe that car technology is a modern phenomenon.
But gadgets for vehicles have been constantly evolving over the last century.
From the first car radio in the Chevrolet 490 in 1922, to the built in GPS systems and reverse parking sensors we see in todays cars, new and innovative car tech keeps appearing.
This impressive infographic from Halfords shows how weird and wacky early contraptions, such as drinks cabinets in the 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham, have been long forgotten. While car stereos, which evolved from the first 8 track in a Ford Mustang in 1966, have continued to be a staple requirement of automobiles.
And who could now manage without electronic digital dashboards, which were first pioneered in Europe by Renault in 1983?
With future car technology likely to see self-driving and magnetised levitating vehicles like the Nissan Motivity 400-C, the sky is the limit for car tech.
